Putting any degree of blame whatsoever on the victim in these situations is just flat out stupid. Of course you can always do something differently to avoid situations, but if you wanted to take your personal liability out of everything in life you wouldnt be doing much of anything. Same goes on the ice... players protect themselves but you still have to skate towards the boards, you still have to turn around the boards...

The liability is on the person who is directly causing the hit in the first place, and the only person who can truly control it - the guy making the hit. Sure accidents happen, and it's not always viscous and with bad intent, but if there is a strict policy with no exeptions on dangerous hits players will learn to be more careful when players can be seriously injured
